If you don’t have anything to declare, then pass through the “Green Corridor” without filling out the declaration. If you have something to declare then follow the “Red Corridor” with your custom declaration.
Even if you pass through the “Green corridor” it is possible that the guards will ask you to open the bag. (this doesn’t happen so often and at the opposite of what people may think the Ukrainian officers are quite polite)
Take with you all possible receives of the important items that you take with you both presents and personal items. (i mean for ex. notebook or any object that cost not so few)
The same about the things you will buy in Ukraine.
